Dolls House & Miniature Scene
Welcome to the June edition!
This issue is packed full of so much pint-sized perfection! We hit the ground running with an exclusive interview with popular contestant Bexie from The Great Big Tiny Design Challenge! Did you watch the show? What did you think? It was so great to see the mini world celebrated, and we loved watching Bexie’s talents grow from week to week. At the time of writing this we don’t know who the winner is but will certainly be tuning in to find out… you might just see them inside our July issue!
This month sees the historic and momentous Platinum Jubilee, celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s 70-year reign, and we wanted to make sure this was commemorated – in mini! Sadie Brown marks the occasion by speaking to some brilliant artisans including Pauline Pugliese and David Castillo – make sure you turn to page 11 to check out their work, their work is something to be seen, including Pauline’s model of Her Majesty herself in 1/12th scale and David’s 1/12th scale replica Crown Jewels! Elsewhere Ruth Flewelling Lesbirel shows a different way to celebrate in the Jubilee, with a piece of nostalgia in the form of her little caravan – staycation ready!
We also have a fantastic selection of other projects for you to try your hand at, including a superb pallet garden seat and a faux fur stole. Our reader project this month is an interesting read, find out about Claire Davis’ mice family made in an upturned planter… turn to page 46 to read more!
So much to do and read, happy mini-ing!
